How to use Google+ Business Page for your business.1) The Sharing becomes easier. Share information to entertain, inform and interest your audience. When you share, others learn more about you and your interests. Remember you are what you share so people will resonate with the image you share of yourself. Make sure you provide value and become a resource that helps to build your brand. Google+ loves lots and lots of photos and is built for sharing images. Think about how you can use visual marketing for your business. What images, charts or slides can you use to initiate interest, conversation and increase the viral spread of your content? 2) Promote your business. Add recommended links. Google+ encourages you to promote your business. Under the “About” tab of your Google+ Page, you can add recommended links on the right side bar. Here you can add links to your blog, important blog articles and lead generation offers to drive more traffic and leads for your business. 3) Promote your Google+ Page on your blog and website. Cross-promotion is key to building your Google+ community. The way to get people to add your Google+ Page to their Circles is to promote the page in places such as your homepage, blog side bar and other social media accounts. 4) Encourage people to share your posts. Just like the request to “retweet” on Twitter, when you post a message, photo or link on Google+; ask your subscribers to share your content with the people in their Circles. 5) Build a Community. Create a place where your subscribers can talk and share their experiences. One of the biggest selling points of Google+ is the ability to segment different groups of people into what they have named “Circles”. This enables you to share content with certain people or a combination of people but not necessarily all of the people you are connected with.
